Summary

Summary

More than a decorating style, the Arts and Crafts movement was a celebration of quality, integrity, and simplicity. Though this marriage of philosophy and style has its origins in the mid-19th century, the finely crafted furniture, subtly colored pottery and textiles, and handsome mica-shaded lamps have remained perennially popular, and are as beautifully fitting in today's homes as they were at the turn of the century.

Library Journal Review

The Arts and Crafts movement of design, popular at the beginning of the century, has a "desire to return to quality in workmanship and design" and a sparse modern look that make it continually popular today. The authors expand on their previous book, Architecture & Design Library, Arts & Crafts (Friedman/Fairfax, 1997), to include a more detailed look at the domestic architecture, including regional interpretations, as well as short biographies on the influential designers, artisans, artists, and architects of the movement. This book has an extensive resource list, lacking in the "Architecture & Design Library" series, that makes it highly recommended for interior design collections with a patronage for this design style.
